Holiday Textures: 5 Fabrics, 15 Outfit Ideas

It's all about silk, brocade, lace, leather, and boucle this season. By Stephanie Castillo

It’s the pinnacle of the season, and all the stylephiles are in a flurry! There’s no better time than now to break out all those swanky fabrics you hesitate to don during warmer months. December is one big party, so feel free to dress like it!

In this style guide, we’ll show you how to work brocade, lace, leather, bouclé, and silk into your everyday wardrobe. These outfit ideas are day-to-night approved, so with a few tweaks in makeup and shoe choice, you can take each one into Christmas cocktails post-work. Here’s to a good time!
